On Tuesday morning I attended a meeting at the local chapter of BNI , a global organization which offers members the opportunity to share ideas, contacts and most importantly, business referrals. I met really awesome people, lots of business referrals were shared and I need to think about whether I will join.
There are huge advantages for joining. The biggest being, the networking is very structured and people actually bring lots of business referrals to the table. Ja, I was impressed and the only reason I hesitate is that weekly meetings are mandatory and I don't know if I'm in a position to commit to that. Many thanks to Adri and Gaynor for inviting me and Tamara for telling me about it waay back when we first met in person.
